Stocks: When "Sentiment is Strikingly Suited" for a Major Stock Market Event / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: EWI

What an extreme use of leverage tells you about the trend

Stock market history shows that when the Elliott wave model of stock market patterns and market bullish/bearish sentiment indicators are aligned, you have the basis for a high-confidence forecast.

That was the exact situation back in January, right before the stock market's jarring sell-off, from which stocks still haven't quite recovered.

Inflation or Deflation ? Market Drama and Suspense ! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2018

By: Rambus_Chartology

The big question I’ve been grappling with recently is the inflation or deflation theme. Last Friday’s price action felt like a counterpunch to the deflation scenario as the US dollar fell pretty hard and interest rate reversed. It was almost exactly a year ago around at this time that we started to take some positions related to the inflationary scenario by buying some of the different commodities stocks like BHP, COPX, KOL, UWT, SCCO, SCHN and STLD. Many had broken out of large trading ranges and H&S bottoms. In January of this year when the US stock markets began our recent correction I went to 100% cash as I wanted to be safe than sorry. That was also about the time the US dollar began to find a possible bottom which had pretty much been in a free fall.

Lets start by looking at some US dollar charts as it will most likely be our guide in the inflation or deflation theme going forward. This first daily chart shows the US dollar initially bottoming in late January and then building out the five point rectangle reversal pattern that reversed the downtrend. After a strong impulse move up the US dollar began to correct that impulse leg by building out a rising wedge formation seven weeks ago. IMHO that seven week rising wedge is probably the most important chart pattern on the planet right now. Whichever way it breaks out will affect a lot of markets.

Gold & Silver Need THIS to Unfold before They Rally Sharply Higher... / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: MoneyMetals

Mike Gleason: It is my privilege now to welcome in Greg Weldon, CEO and president of Weldon Financial. Greg has over three decades of market research and trading experience, specializing in the metals and commodity markets, and his close connection with the metals led him to author a book back in 2006, titled Gold Trading Boot Camp, where he accurately predicted the implosion of the U.S. credit market and urged people to buy gold when it was only $550 an ounce.

He's a regular presenter at financial conferences throughout the country, and is a highly sought-after guest on many financial shows. And it's always great to have him on the Money Metals Podcast. Greg, good to talk to you again. Welcome back.

SKEW has Spiked. What This Means for Stocks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Troy_Bombardia

The CBOE’s SKEW Index measures potential risk for the financial markets over the next 30 days. When the SKEW Index spikes, conventional “wisdom” assumes that there’s a greater chance of a “black swan” event occurring in the financial markets.

The SKEW Index typically ranges from 100 to 150. The higher the value, the greater the chance of a “black swan” event.

Has the USD Finally Topped? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: SurfCity

The USD has had a bullish run out of it’s Intermediate and Yearly Cycle Low (YCL) in early February but it is now deep in my timing band to start seeking out its next 5-6 Month Intermediate Cycle Low (ICL). While I don’t want to overplay the negative correlation between the USD and Gold the correlation has been quite strong for most of 2018. A major top in the USD here, should benefit Gold and the broader CRB here.

My first chart is a close up Daily showing Friday’s bearish reversal candle and close below the 10ma on day 9. A close below the 10ma usually always signal’s a move into a short term Trading or Daily Cycle Low (TCL/DCL) and should provide enough Time for the USD to test the 200ma near 92 on my Daily chart. Day 9 is the earliest top we have seen in a short term Trading or Daily Cycle but we now need further confirmation, including a close next week below the 10wma on the Weekly. Note that the 10wma has been very strong support since early April but Time is also becoming an Issue for the USD here.

Proprietary System Shows Stock Market Rally Could Extend Higher / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The following Weekly charts are illustrations of one of our proprietary price modeling systems that shows trends, market breadth and much more.  We use this almost exclusively on longer-term (Weekly, Monthly, and Quarterly charts) to help us understand where longer-term support and resistance levels are, where the market ranges are truly important and to determine true market breadth.  When we are studying Daily chart or intra-day charts – the shorter term price rotation can often clutter our interpretation of the long term expectations.  Yes, we have other modeling systems, predictive analysis systems, Fibonacci systems, Adaptive Cycles systems and more.  Our collection of proprietary analysis tools is very deep.  Yet, one has to know how to use these tools and what value they can provide at different times.

The Global Cannabis Market Is Set To Explode / Commodities / Cannabis

By: OilPrice_Com

As the global marijuana industry booms, one little company has just hit a huge payday.

Scythian Biosciences Corp. (TSXV: SCYB.V; OTC:SCCYF) is a tiny company with a big secret: a way to turn cannabis assets across the world into investments worth hundreds of millions.

The company is making a transition from biosciences to investment, and it’s just struck it rich.

Scythian has accomplished a huge coupe: it’s agreed to sell its assets in Jamaica and Latin America to Aphria, the marijuana giant, for $193 million.

 That’s because weed is GLOBAL. It’s much, much more than Canada and the US.

The Death of the US Real Estate Dream / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

In I showed how Japan’s first and more massive real estate bubble peaked in 1991. And then showed how it crashed right along our bubble model into 2013.

The difference was, it never bounced. Even when its Millennial generation came along to buy houses again.

A rise of “dyers” (sellers) were offsetting the rise of Millennial buyers.

Now let’s look at the U.S. bubble – or our double bubble.

China is Now Officially at War With the US and Japan / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2018

By: Graham_Summers

It is not a war of guns and soldiers, but a war of finance.

The Trump White House is aggressively going after China on trade. Every other month we are seeing a new round of tariffs announced on hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of Chinese exports.

China is retaliating by devaluing the Yuan against the US Dollar at a pace not seen since early 2016. In real terms, the 10% in tariffs the Trump administration will implement on Chinese goods has ALREADY been negated by China’s 14% Yuan devaluation.

You Buy the Fear in Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: Gary_Tanashian

This article does not speak to gold’s proper fundamentals, which are not yet very healthy (although some positive signs are finally gathering). For the proper counter-cyclical atmosphere to engage gold bulls would need have risk ‘on’ markets and assets crack. Yet, gold’s (and silver’s) price may well bottom before readily obvious fundamental improvement is apparent to a majority (as was the case in Q1 2016). 

Far too much analysis is put out there linking gold with inflation. It is true that gold often acts as an effective inflation hedge, but it all too often fails in that capacity.

Far too much analysis is put out there linking gold with war, terror, pestilence and other conditions of human suffering. The surest way to spot a gold promoter, if he is not pumping inflation, is his pitch for gold as a disaster hedge. Yes okay, and I have a little Unibomber shack in Montana to sell you too.

Trumponomics Stock Market 2018 - The Manchurian President (1/2) / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Trumponomics in a nutshell can be summed up as a mish mash of policies built on tweets that has surprisingly so far delivered relative stock market strength for the broad US markets this year that has the Dow currently trading at 25,064 marginally up from at the start of the year opening level of 24,720 whilst standing up 7.5% a from its early April low of 23,300. So as the Dow chart illustrates the stock market has refused to FALL this year despite the chaos of the unfolding trade war that has been the focus of the mainstream press for 2018.

The Death of Japan's Real Estate Dream / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

It’s no secret that Millennials are not buying homes as early or to the degree that Boomers did.

They saw the first major real estate crash since the Great Depression. So, rentals are up and home buying is down.

But this is being called “the Dream on Hold.”

Our view is based purely on demographics, and it is more extreme than that: By 2024 the home ownership dream as a means to wealth will be DEAD!

Looking at the Amazon Tax / Companies / Amazon

By: Rodney_Johnson

Recently the Supreme Court overruled previous decisions that said states couldn’t require companies without a physical location in their state to collect sales tax.

Now, online retailers must collect sales tax based on the consumer’s location, no matter where the retailer resides.

Before I get to what this means to Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN) and others, it’s worth recalling that just because states could not force out of state retailers to collect the tax, it was always due.

Gold Stocks Investment Wanes / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold’s summer doldrums are dragging on this year, with this asset slumping longer and lower than usual.  Several converging factors are responsible.  The stronger dollar has convinced gold-futures speculators to sell aggressively, and gold’s downside momentum has fed on itself.  Investment demand has waned on the resulting weaker gold prices and euphoric near-record-high stock markets, but that should reverse soon.

Summers are usually gold’s weakest time of the year seasonally.  So investors and speculators need to be mentally prepared for lackluster or bearish trading action this time of year.  Market summers run Junes, Julies, and Augusts.  And their first halves are simply devoid of the recurring outsized spikes in gold investment demand seen during much of the rest of the year.  Thus gold prices tend to drift neglected.

Custom Global Stock Market Indexes May Be Sounding Alarms / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

Over the past 4+ months, we’ve been working away trying to keep our readers aware of the risks and concerns that were originating out of some foreign markets and how that might relate to the US markets.  We remember a point in time back in June or July 2017 when we, suddenly, started receiving emails and calls from moderately large Indian, Indonesian and other foreign development companies asking to schedule time for an “introduction call”.  It is not unusual for us to receive cold calls from development firms looking for new projects, but at one point we were getting 2 to 3 calls a week.

S&P 500 Just 2% Below Record High, But There's More Stock Market Uncertainty / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Paul_Rejczak

Stocks were basically unchanged on Wednesday, as investors took short-term profits off the table following the recent rally. Is this a topping pattern before downward reversal, or just a quick flat correction before another leg up? Will quarterly earnings releases drive the market higher?

The U.S. stock market indexes were mixed between 0.0% and 0.3% on Wednesday, as investors' sentiment remained pretty bullish following the recent rally. The S&P 500 index reached the highest since the early February, as it slightly extended its short-term uptrend yesterday. It currently trades just 2.0% below the January's 26th record high of 2,872.87. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.3% and the technology Nasdaq Composite was unchanged on Wednesday.

Stock Market Technical Picture / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Christopher_Quigley

No two recessions are ever the same.
One of the best indicators of a possible recession on the horizon is the inversion of the American Treasury interest rate yield curves. Inversion means the yield on short term rates are abnormally higher than long term rates. With Jerome Powell, the FED chairman, publically committed to another two .25% interest rate hikes this year, it is highly probable that by year end the 2/10 year yield curve will have inverted. (Currently the spread between the 2 year and 10 year yield is only .26%). In the recessions of 2000 and 2008 the American economy experienced severe recessions within 22 months and 24 months, respectively, upon yield curve inversion.
